Grizzly Tracking - with Citizen Scientists
Grizzly bears have been under serious pressure in the last few years. Changes in climate and habitat have reduced important food sources and the bears have begun to look for new locations with enough resources to survive long winters. Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation (ASC) has brought nearly 50 military veterans and community members from as far as California and New York to Montana's Tobacco Root Mountains on a search for grizzly bears, successfully collecting more than two dozen samples that have been sent to the lab for DNA testing. ASC outings expose participants to a new side of wilderness exploration, which will give their future outdoor endeavors a greater purpose.
